I want to highlight all the #N/A results of a Vlookup function in a column. Conditional Formatting refuses to recognize #N/A, evidently because of the pound sign.

Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks

Can you sort left to right?
To sort left-to-right, use the Sort dialog box. Click Options. Choose "Sort left to right"

Maybe use an if statement in the formula which is creating the #N/A to get a better result. For example where your #N/A formula = FORMULA:

=if(iserror(FORMULA),"Error",FORMULA)

Failing this can't you use an If(iserror(CELL) in the Conditional formatting????
